- Are you missing a cat? This cute tabby was spotted at 13th Avenue South and South Spokane Street at around 11:15pm last night hanging out on a front porch. The neighbor who saw him didn’t bring him inside, but just wanted to get the word out where this cat is hanging out, in case someone’s missing their kitty. (Thanks, Robert!)
This morning about 11:15, it seems our black and white tuxedo cat made a run for it. The cat disappeared from the corner of 17th and Stevens St.
The kitty’s name is Ivy. She is a VERY LARGE (overweight) tuxedo (black and white) cat. Ivy is an indoor cat. She’s probably out there and scared silly.
She is friendly but shy, but will be easy to catch because she sort of waddles. She looks like she is wearing a black tuxedo jacket that doesn’t close in the front. She has a round face and very large round gold eyes.
Thanks for keeping your eyes open for her–
If anyone sees her, please contact us here at the Blog and we will forward your message to Kristen. Thanks.
Update: Joe writes to tell us Lulu has been found. Thanks everyone!

If this is your dog, please emailÂ email@example.com. Thanks!
Kathy wrote to alert us of a kitten found near 13th Ave S and S Shelton earlier this evening. He’s described as a young, several-month-old black and brown male tabby. He’s healthy looking and appears well-cared-for, and so probably hasn’t been lost for very long.
He’ll likely be taken to the shelter to be examined for an identifying microchip tomorrow, but if you can help determine who this kitten belongs to, please mail us and we’ll put you in contact with Kathy to get this kitty home.
“I’ve seen this female dog wandering around 13th avenue south between Plum and Holgate for the past few days. She runs away when approached and appears to be pregnant. She has a black collar so I’m assuming she is someones lost pet.”
